Rob Sibcy graduated from Washington and Jefferson College with a BS in Economics in 1965. He then joined Sibcy Realtors, as it was then known, as a sales associate. The company had been started by his grandfather in the 1930′s and was being run by his father Robert J. Sibcy.
In 1968 at the age of 25, Sibcy was thrust into the corporate leadership role when his father suffered a heart attack and two strokes that left him partially paralyzed and unable to speak. “I was a sales agent one day and president of the company the next,” Rob recalls. Despite the recession of 1969 and the need to learn the business, Sibcy, Inc., thrived under Rob’s leadership. “There was no option,” he says. “And my father’s illness was certainly strong motivation.” In 1971, Rob married the former Pamela Dixon.
When Rob was named president, the company had one office and 15 sales associates. In 1980, immediately prior to skyrocketing interest rates, Rob acquired the Robert A. Cline Company and Sibcy Cline, Inc. was born. He has remained motivated throughout the growth of the company and its affiliates. Today, there are 22 branch offices with approximately 1400 real estate agents in Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Dayton.
Rob has diversified his business interests with the founding of multiple Sibcy Cline affiliate companies. His numerous outside affiliations include all local area Boards of Realtors, and the Ohio, Kentucky, and National Association of Realtors. Within the real estate industry, he serves on the Board of Directors of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a national network of independent real estate brokers. Outside of the industry, Rob serves on the Greater Cincinnati Foundation Finance Committee, the Board of Directors of Artswave (formerly the Fine Arts Fund), and on the Board of Directors of the Myers Y. Cooper Company.
